Folks are laughing at the fellow who is suing as they lost on a 300 share purchase. It's kind of comical that he's the lead plaintiff (heck I lost 25x that) but the complaint is actually very well put together and I'm almost certain we'll see a settlement. The lawyers took a 1/3 bite on my Bear Stearns but I did get 25 % on the dollar there. Expect this to settle too as it's indefensible.
As for the individual, everybody has different means, but nobody deserves to be cheated and lied to.
